My Favorite Roller Coaster

In keeping with the "my favorite" theme, this is my favorite roller coaster. It is the Incredible Hulk roller coaster at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. Parley had a business trip there a couple of years ago and I got to go along. Neither one of had been to Universal Studios in Florida so we decided to brave it on a Saturday. Without any kids, it wasn't a big deal to have to stand in lines. I don't know if you can see it very will in the picture, but there is a tunnel/hill you start slowly going up, as you do on most rollercoasters. You are calmly climbing and waiting until you get to the top for the ride to really start. However, it totally takes you off guard and about half-way up the hill it just shoots you up at about 50 m.p.h. You come shooting out of the tunnel and kind of twist down backward as you come out. Then lots of loopdy-loops and good stuff. I think I went on it 5 times in one day. Three of those being back-to-back at the end of the day. It was so scarry and soooo fun!!
p.s. If you click on the picture, it makes it bigger :)
